Media Backs Lawless Tyranny of Eviction Moratorium

The Democrat plan has long been to impose Marxism by increments. Now that we are approaching the end game, the increments are larger. An example is Biden’s admittedly illegal eviction moratorium — that is, his decree that landlords must house tenants at their own expense.

Biden acknowledges that he does not have the legal authority to inflict this, but boasts that it will take time for courts to stop him. If he makes good on his threat to pack the Supreme Court with Merrick Garland types, he won’t have to worry about that in the future.

The Wall Street Journal accurately describes this as “premeditated lawlessness.”

The original eviction ban, imposed under the previous administration, was an outrage. At least there was the admittedly lame excuse that the government was still in panic mode over Covid. The Supreme Court made clear that the moratorium was allowed to stay in place only because it would soon expire. Now, Covid mortality is under control, and employers are begging workers to come off the government dole and get back to their jobs. Covid is clearly only a pretext.

More from the WSJ:

In justifying the ban, the government cited the Public Health Service Act of 1944. To halt disease, that law says the CDC may require “inspection, fumigation, disinfection, sanitation, pest extermination,” and so forth, with a final catchall phrase for “other measures.”

“Other measures” apparently means that any decree, no matter how outlandishly tyrannical, can be imposed through the CDC if they pretend it is for our health.

There’s no limiting principle.

That’s the point. We are approaching absolute tyranny, as inevitably follows whenever Marxists come to power.

It is bad enough that many landlords will continue to be ruined, as they are forced to provide free housing for parasites, despite relying on rent for income and to pay mortgages on the commandeered property. Added to this, those who disobey will be fined and thrown in prison:

This is an attack on property rights, the sanctity of contracts, the Constitution, and rule of law.

No one familiar with the fate of landlords when communists took control of China will be surprised that landlords are early targets of Marxists here too.

If pushback is not sufficiently forceful, the regime will encroach further on what remains of our freedom.

Meanwhile, the liberal media establishment that helped Biden and his handlers to power eggs them on in their lawlessness:

If the Biden Regime ends as messily as the comparably arrogant Louis XVI’s reign, out front of New York Times and CNN headquarters are likely locations for guillotines.
